C-peptide immunoreactivity (CPR) in 24-h urine was assayed in 13 diabetic patients during and after recovery from ketoacidosis. In 10 patients who remained insulin-dependent on discharge and in the subsequent follow-up period, urine CPR was low (18 micrograms/day or less), while in three patients who were ultimately controlled by diet or sulfonylureas… CONTINUE READING
